Best The Weeknd Songs

The Top Ten

The Hills The Hills Cover Art

The chorus on this song is one of the best choruses I’ve ever heard on a song, and the bridge part of the song still gives me chills till this day hauntingly beautiful

This song is incredible. It is dark, gloomy, and honest in all the right ways. Some might criticize the heavy use of Autotune in the chorus, but I found that usage very fitting for such a dark track.

First Weeknd song I heard that made me fall in love. It is amazing and I memorized all the words about the third time I listened to it. Really makes other artists sound like crap.

I absolutely LOVE this song. It is his best so far and I sincerely hope that he will make another song like it. I have been a # 1 fan of "The Hills" since it came out and now it is #1!

Wicked Games Wicked Games Cover Art

This deserves to be number one. The Weeknd's new stuff is great and all, but none of it can compare to Wicked Games. Where do I start? The production is spacious, atmospheric, and almost somber. The lyrics are about regretting your past and looking for love at the lowest point of your life. The multitracking on the vocals in the chorus are outstanding, and the guitar in the background is beautiful. An overall amazing song, and definitely The Weeknd's best song.

Needs to be #1. enough said. Many fans can relate the dark and sinister passion you can hear in the song. Bandwagons just put "The Hills" at #1 because its his "best yet"...No were near this song

Wicked Games always catches me in my feelings, I love the song so much, I am huge fan of The Weeknd and I can relate to Wicked Games. It deserves the number one spot.

Personally, I'm not a weeknd fan, however the lead singer has an incredible voice and it is displayed on this track and the lyrics are more than the cheesy superficial radio stuff

Starboy Starboy Cover Art

Maybe Starboy is not as good as the hills, but it deserves to be at least 2nd, as wicked games sucks and should not even be in the top 10

This song made me a TOTAL FAN of this guy. Not only was this song one of the best things I've seen out of 21st century music, it's music video was KILLER. I could listen to this song OVER AND OVER again and never get bored.

Dude, this is easily his best song. The beat is phenomenal, the flow is amazing, and is extremely catchy. This is the only one of his songs that never seems to get old.

I never thought that I would enjoy song sang in falsetto and yet I do like this song a lot. Nice video, nice lyrics, nice singing, performance, meaning.. everything. The Hills is so overrated ;/

I Feel It Coming I Feel It Coming Cover Art

There's been comparisons to the Weeknd and Michael Jackson. I think this song is the closest one you can make.

This song couldn't be better. I thought the starboy album was going to be the death of The Weeknd but this song proved me wrong.

I had flashbacks of Michael Jackson when I first saw and heard this song. Unbelievable!

How is this 17! This is his best song, he will never top this. This is number 1 on my list.

Can't Feel My Face Can't Feel My Face Cover Art

This song should be at #1. This song is easily The Weeknd's best song and I'm not sure if he'll ever make a song as good as it. His singing, the amazing lyrics, the production, it's so amazing. It's like Michael Jackson. His singing sounds like Michael, he says ooh before the hook, and he spins and gets on fire in the video

This song defines the quotation "love at first sight"... Just love the song! One of my favourite songs.

Awesome song this song made weeknd recognize all around the world

This song is just epic because on 4music when is came out it came on 2nd place!

In the Night In the Night Cover Art

WORST SONG EVER! Ugh! The lyrics DON'T make this a masterpiece! This will be the worst song of 2016 besides the atrocious "Freedoms call" by the USA Trump voters kids. The weeknd is the worst singer EVER! He makes Justin Beiber look like the Beatles! This is not one of the best songs by the weeknd earned it is better.

Nearly flawless, it’s easily the best song outside of his early mixtapes. The beat and rythym echoing that of everybody wants to rule the world, the thumping and wavering bass line that gives it a personal Jesus vibe, and the gentle synths reminiscent of frank ocean’s nights in the hook that are followed by a dramatic synth breakdown similar to bad-era Michael Jackson, all alongside occasional pianos throughout the verses. Paired with excellent vocals that croon over the production; the song’s strongest suit, however, is easily the lyrics. They tell a story about a teenage girl who is physically and sexually abused by her father, and forced into stripping and sex in order to make money for her struggling family. And that is why this song is arguably one of the best songs The Weeknd has ever recorded.

People on this site appear to be immature, this was one of the standout tracks on this album (I found the hills to be overrated). The lyrics are deep and meaningful, talking about a rarely touched upon subject in the music industry. Just listen and see.

Once this is released as a single, people will know just how great this song is. As with every song by The Weeknd, the lyrics are beautiful, but his voice is absolutely incredible in this piece.

House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls

It's dark, violent, sexual, trippy, and most of all, it's The Weeknd. What more could you ask for?

This is an amazing song that is underappreciated. I'm gonna leave it at that

Love it when the beat transitions into Glass Table Girls. It sounds so dark and creepy with Abel's deeper vocals and lyrics.

This song is so amazing it's probably my favorite on the album

The Morning

The hills as number one? Seriously?! Why do people who have only listened to the most popular songs even vote on this. The morning is one of the most beautiful songs ever.

The production values are outstanding out of all of his songs, with jaw-dropping vocals and a beautiful guitar strum is played in the back. What could be better?

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The gorgeous guitar instrumental along with Abel's incredible vocals and phenomenal bass lines comes together to create a wonderfully serene production.

The beat is so smooth and the guitar in the background adds so much. My favorite hands down.

Call Out My Name Call Out My Name Cover Art

Just wow, fell in love the first time I heard it.

One of his best song till date.

Best The Weeknd song by far

This song made me his fan

High for This

An interesting song with a fantastic bass session

One of the best from his house of balloons album

Incredibly catchy.

Greatest opener to an album/mixtape ever. Not only is it relevant to the storyline and incredibly immersive, but listeners feel that Abel is singing to them about his music and his music career as well. As of 2018, we still can't expect what is in store music wise from him.

The Contenders

Earned It

After listening this I just fall for this singer.. The most seductive song ever! Event the lyrics are justifiable and beautiful...

After hearing to this song... I fell in love with weekend and also 50 shades.. This is the most erotic song I have ever heard... this should be in the 1st position

The Weeknd actually turned a 50 Shades song into something as catchy as hell with stellar production, well whaddya know. 5/5

Number 14?... Really guys?...this is undeniably his best song... I think it should be #1

Reminder Reminder Cover Art

Every time you try to forget who I am, I'll be there to remind you again, that you know verse

My current favorite from him. This should zoom up this list in no time. What a song!

An incredible vibe. An amazing voice. Original. Darkness. Catchy. Perfect.

Well here's the upside. We never forgot who he is. We probably never will.

Twenty Eight Twenty Eight Cover Art

He pours his heart out in this, amazing song. My favourite by him, he's an amazing singer

Favorite song from him behind Wicked Games. Beautiful chorus and vocals, and the production is outstanding.

Definitely my favourite, amazing vocals and production, and he puts so much passion and emotion into it

This song serves as a metaphor for his success, and features some of his best singing yet

Blinding Lights Blinding Lights Cover Art

Blinding Lights is by far my favorite Weeknd song to date! I enjoy the retro 80s synth production and the Weeknd bringing personality to this song. And it sound very similar to 80s hits like Young Turks by Rod Stewart and Take On Me by Ah-a. I hope this song will become a classic.

First of all, sorry for the '- The Weeknd' part, can't remove it without also removing the artwork.

This song sounds a lot like what Abel could've put in Kiss Land, what with the song being a blatant 80's synthpop throwback. The difference is that Kiss Land has a pretty negative energy to it, and this is purely positive. And that makes it better than, like, 80% of that album. My only complaint is that the hook could've been better structured lyrically, but otherwise this is catchy as HELL, would love to see this get successful.

This is best song of him so far, he really has amazing talent, I was scared that the song won't get much recognition because heartless has already gotten popular in US despite the two songs are being released at the same week, but who can possibly hate this song. It destined to be hit.

It feels like I am listening to that Rod Stewart song Young Turks from the 1980s. Yet, it sounds great. Well, I think it would make a great song for a 1980s car commercial.

Often Often Cover Art

One of his more famous works, with a catchy chorus and innovative lyrics

This shows how good of a songwriter the weekend was

This should definitely be higher up on the list,.

This should be placed much higher.

Tears In the Rain Tears In the Rain Cover Art

Tears in the rain is a beautiful song from Abel. It should get more attention. Listen to the lyrics and I promise you will love it. If you're an XO fan like me, you should already love every song by Abel.

Didn't know that Abel self-realizing could be so beautiful

This is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard...from any artist. Enough said

Never get tired of this beautiful song

Elastic Heart Elastic Heart Cover Art

This is sia.

The Zone

My favorite song, calming and good to fall asleep to

Its just good honestly plus drake kills it

Amazing song, most relaxing thing to hear


The Knowing

We get an idea of the type of people who are voting if this is lower ranked than In The Night.

The story telling, the video, the passion, all amazing. If this was a later more known work of his, no doubt it would be higher. Definitely a pyre diamond buried under the sheer excellence of "House of Balloons".

No debate. Filled with unimaginable soul and crazy subtext behind the lyrics.

I would put this in his top 10 and the video is creative probably one of the best music videos I've seen.

XO / The Host

The background music sets a tone that becomes complete with his almost skeptical yet compelling vocals which persuade you to want to join his lifestyle and experience the story he paints in the song

His flow, voice, and lyrics just bang! Simple.

Amazing. It's dark, it almost makes me want to experience his lifestyle. Should totally be number 1 on this list.

XO is awesome, The Host sucks.


One of his best songs, yet extremely underrated. His strained yet beautiful vocals tie into the amazing lyrics which give you an emotional and beautiful look into his life. This is definitely one of his more vulnerable songs where he expresses his sorrow and flaws

I can't pick which one is the best, but He speaks French in this song

"Baby I'm a pro at letting go, I love it when they come and go."

The drums and the Weeknd's voice are amazing

Die for You Die for You Cover Art

The fact that he shows a different and more loving makes the song more unique and individual. I also appreciate the long notes in the chorus

This song is just filled with emotion and is an an amazing song to make love with your partner to.

So much emotion in one song


Pray for Me Pray for Me Cover Art

Best and even better its from MARVEL! I love IT!

Great song. Kendrick's part is good as well.

The best of all

One of the best songs in 2018.☺🙃

Sidewalks Sidewalks Cover Art

27 is about 30 spots too low for this song

This needs to be in the top 20

Tell Your Friends Tell Your Friends Cover Art

Should be top 3 behind "wicked games" and "the morning"
